  1. I don't get to be a player as much as a DM. So, when I do get to play, I want to spend a little extra effort on my figure for my own PC. This is the situation for this Goldar. He is a half-orc fire specialized sorcerer, so he get's to use a Greataxe and plays a little like a one-trick pony with his fire spells. I envisioned him as very gray skinned. I tried to accomplish a green shadow blending up to gray highlights. I mixed MSP Stone Gray and Highland Moss, then highlighting with Weathered Stone. I think it just ended up as a pale green, but
  2. I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I. I tried to give them fur texture. The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand. The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel. I spent WAY too much time painting these... Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter. They’re rats. A lot of them. C&C Welcome.
  3. Here was a quickie. The bats are mainly drybrushed then cleaned up with lining. Then I did the gravestone using Michael Proctor's tips about lots of different colored washes. It was a bunch of diluted GW Shades and Glazes, then re-lined the stone with Weathered Stone. I liked it so much, I tried it on the bats themselves to add some interest.
  4. Hi everyone. Here is a mini I have been working on for several weeks. Lately, I am lucky to be able to paint a little every day. Unfortunately, it is only for 5-15 minutes at a time. This figure is part of my growing batch of options for my GM running us through the Pathfinder Adventure Path, Reign of Winter. I always thought blue, white, and gold were good colors together. It is popular in many heraldic devices. I am most happy with this figure in terms of the following: The freehand wood grain of the axe, the outcome of the gold NMM on the belt buc
  5. Here's another recent paint. It still goes along with the Reign of Winter AP theme, though I don't know if the Adventure Path has a Polar Bear or not. This figure represents an example of "It looked better in my head." I tried following some pictures of polar bears on the web: It seems some are very yellowed (not necessarily in the shadows), and some are very white. So, I started with a base of 50/50 Golden Blonde/Linen White, and successively lightened it up to white, and left the darker color in the shadows. I thought the fur quality on this BONES sculpt is ve
  6. Also to go along with our Reign of Winter campaign. This is the BONES Winter Wolf. I had the most fun with the eyes. Some of the pics came out a little dark, despite 3 lights. It must be a camera thing... C&C Welcome.
  7. I haven't posted much lately. Work and life have been busy. We have been playing Reign of Winter. The GM told me there would be some Snow Goblins. I thought these Bones Gremlins look a lot like Pathfinder Goblins, so I gave them a wintry paint scheme and some snowy bases. C&C Welcome
  8. Here are some classic vermin for your viewing pleasure. Still going along with the Reign of Winter theme, I wanted one wintry option. The red one shading/blending got really washed out in the picture. The recesses are splattered crimson, so much darker than this looks. Boy, are these eyes tiny! C&C Welcome.
  9. Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts. I was really pleased with these Trandoshan. The method from Sorastro really worked well for the skin of these reptilians. All of the skin was painted the same. Then, all 4 had different washes with either a little more blue, green, brown, or sepia than the other. It really shows in the blue and sepia Trandoshan. I will try it out on some of the metal and Bones Reaper Lizardmen I have. I didn't want to paint one of these as Bossk, since Fantasy Flight Games released a Bossk expansion figure. So, I gave one of them a "salv
  10. Continuing on with my Imperial Assault posts, here is Chewbacca. Again, I have been following Sorastro's guides. This figure was new for me in the use of multiple layers of dark wash over and over. It was about 5 layers. The pictures show this sort of granular/peculiar highlight. I checked on the model, and it is areas that picked up drybrushing that never toned down well with wash. It's all good. I painted Chewie very quickly. C&C Welcome.
  11. Here is another of my Imperial Assault figures. IG-88. I followed the Sorastro guide, which involved drybrushing, washes, drybrushing, etc. 4 or 5 cycles. Then painting on some forced highlights, then a blue wash on one side and a red one on the other. This was fast, and a little sloppy. But fast. C&C Welcome.
  12. To break up your F5's for the Bones IV Kickstarter... Allow me to present another installment of my Imperial Assault work. I have been following the suggestions from the Sorastro Youtube Guides, but with Reaper Paints. Gideon Argus is a field general. It took a few tries to get a skin tone I was happy with, but I am pleased now. Not too sold on the dust effect on the jacket, but it is what it is. C&C welcome.
  13. Here is another batch of figures from my work on my Wave 1 Imperial Assault collection. These are a little more recent, having finished them in late May. It also represents my second real attempt at a non-caucasian human skin tone. One of the figures is a more tanned skin color, and the third is more of an African skin color. I was very pleased how they came out, especially compared to my first attempt. I followed Sorastro's tutorials, but with Reaper paints. My favorite part of these aside from the skin was the blending I accomplished on the pants. C&C Welcomed.
  14. Here is another upload of what I have been working on for the last 18 months: Imperial Assault Core Game. Here is Diala Passil, the Padawan Light Saber wielder of the core 6 heroes in the game. My color scheme follows the character art and Sorastro guide, but with Reaper and Vallejo Game Color paints. The camera makes the cloak look a lot more bright red than it really is. It ended up a sort of brick red in-hand. Overall, the saber blade was my least favorite part of this mini. Colors are under spoiler
  15. If you ever played an archer in an RPG or CRPG, watch this and comment. So awesome it's hard to believe.
  16. Here is another figure from Imperial Assault Core Game, by Fantasy Flight Games. Darth Vader. At once simple but difficult. Trying to achieve dull black and shiny black on the same figure was not easy. I followed Sorastro's guides, but with Reaper Paint. I think this was the first figure I broke out my then newly acquired Citadel shades for the OSL. The black was Black with varying amounts of Snow Shadow for highlights, and then a small dab of a Reaper Sample that is somewhere between ghost white and snow shadow. The camera flash definitely grayed it up, but when
  17. Hi everyone. In an attempt to put some non Bones 3 items on the forums, I present some Storm Troopers. It's been a while since I've posted my own pics. I've been working diligently for the last 15 months trying to finish the first set of Imperial Assault miniatures. I'd previously posted my Probe Droids and Imperial Officers. Below are my Storm Troopers. I did follow the Sorastro guides. If anyone doesn't know about those, it is a well produced set of You Tube videos worth checking out. These storm troopers almost killed the desire to do
  18. To continue my Imperial Assault posts, here is the figure I photographed that had the best light. I'll have to re-take pictures of everyone else. Fenn Signis is a sniper hero in the game. I did follow the Sorastro Guides, but with Reaper paints. The hardest part of this figure was trying to paint in purple sunglasses, when they are not part of the sculpt. Oh, that and BLACK! The pic is a little out of focus on that one, because the camera chose to put the tip of the gun in best focus there. I was happy with how the rebel insignia on his shoulder came out.
  19. Hi everyone. This is my version of Danar. Sculpted by Dennis Mize. I originally modified this figure to match my character in Flamehawke's PBP. It was a desert ranger specializing in sword and spiked shield two-weapon style. I chopped off its arm and spliced on one of the goblin's arms from Bones 6 pack of goblins 77030 I wanted light colors which would do well in a desert. I was pleased with both the white and yellow. The region in Pathfinder he comes from has a flag which is white, yellow and red. So, I painted the Celtic knot red to break up the all white cloak, and put r
  20. Here was my next batch of completed figures for Imperial Assault. I watched Sorastro's Tutorial on You Tube, and tried to follow his steps. However, it is all with Reaper paints. Also, when I went back and watched episode IV, the officer uniforms seemed a sort of gray-green to me, so that's what I went for. I made the rank bars different for each. The highest rank is the red-based "Elite" deployment card. He's the one with gloves on and gray hair. You can see the eyes are a little wonky! Sort of too big. The sculpts had very tiny eyes, shallow, and the detail was o
  21. Happy birthday, Newbie! Hope you have a good 'un.
